Google to partner with TiVo and DISH Network, DVR info to be analyzed



Grab your tinfoil hat and rip the coaxial out of your TiVo privacy-freaks. Search giant Google has setup strategic partnerships with TiVo and DISH Network to analyze customer DVR data in a move billed to better “align advertisers with viewers.” Google TV will do what Google does best — mine data – TiVo and DISH will be providing Google with “second-by-second viewing information on who’s changing channels and when, who’s fast-forwarding through commercials and anonymous information on viewers themselves.” We’re unclear as to how information can be both anonymous but about the viewer? The information will be used to more accurately target and price 30 and 60 second advertisement spots as the data will be able to indicate just how many people actually watched that Viagra ad, versus how many people fast forwarded over the bloody thing.

Google just keeps getting bigger. They have our searches, emails, contacts, navigations, sms, gps location, voicemail (if you have google voice), and soon they'll know what we watch and don't watch.

I love Google.

It taste so goooood...

I do not hate Google for being successful in a way that I admire. We can despise many companies, but I have a hard time finding ways to hate Google.
